The Favourite ★★★★★

Yorgos managed to create something that is so absurdly unique, even for him. Not only is it beautifully crafted but is wildly engaging all throughout. Its colorful characters practically burst off the screen due to how expertly written both them and the dialogue are. The element of subtle comedy works extremely well in the middle of the dark undertones of the film. All aspects of it blended seamlessly within each other and made for a work of perfection. Lanthimos is able to showcase his versatility as a filmmaker and solidify his filmography with this ambitious entry.
